DEADLINE for Registration and Poster Abstract Submission: June 30th, 2024

Join us at #GBI_EoE2024 for practical insights into effectively managing image data, even if you're new to data management. We're dedicated to fostering engaging discussions around strategies to incentivize and optimize data-sharing practices. As an imaging scientist working in a core facility or enabling access to microscopes, we'll address common challenges and brainstorm solutions to support your work and foster global collaboration.

Throughout the event, we'll cover the basics: acquisition, storage, and sharing. Learn what to keep in mind when acquiring image data, how to set up a basic storage system that can grow with your facility over time, and ensure your data is accessible and shareable, whether you're working with colleagues down the hall or on the other side of the globe.

You can also register for the first day, where we will delve into the national landscape in Japan: ABiS2024. Both ABiS2024 and EoE2024 will showcase real-world examples and present innovative imaging analysis or management tools, with the overall aim of drafting strategies towards mitigating challenges and improving solutions for broader access and inclusivity in both bioimaging and biomedical imaging. As we move towards the last day and into the FoundingGIDE event, we will delve more deeply into the steps that image data scientists, supported by funders, decision-makers, and corporate partners, can take to advance towards a Global Image Data Ecosystem (GIDE).

Additionally, this year, we're excited to invite you to SUBMIT an abstract for a poster presentation. Enhance your networking opportunities and boost your exposure to a global audience by showcasing your latest technological advancements, imaging unit, facility, or community-building initiatives in your region. This is your chance to connect, collaborate, and leave a lasting impression on the vibrant landscape of imaging sciences

Stay tuned for our detailed program, and in the meantime, explore our draft overview to begin your travel arrangements!
